INSIDE is a series of vessel objects, which elevate a vessel’s inner space. Shiny and reflective brass or copper elements nest perfectly inside a matt and light absorbing unglazed ceramic vessel. The two materials offer highly contrasting visual and tactile qualities and invite to be touched and explored. Depending on the viewpoint the embedded metal surfaces flare up and draw the viewer‘s attention to take a closer look inside. Some metal inlays reveal an engraved texture, others are perfectly polished and mirror their surroundings. The hand built ceramic vessels have a porous yet smooth and tactile surface which is achieved through a process of perforating the soft clay and sanding the pieces after firing.
